LIVE ACTS at Hell City "The Reaping" 2020 

An all NEW act at Hell City Tattoo Fest “The Reaping” 2020! A shock and a laugh is exactly what you get from Captain and Maybelle as they take the Hell City mainstage.! They are partners in crime and focused on taking over and entertaining the world! Performing classic sideshow entertainment at Hell City 2020 in both Ohio and Arizona with a contemporary twist and delivering zingers and stingers is what they do best! Step up to the mainstage at Hell City 2020 as Captain is one of the world’s most dangerous Sword Swallowers! Captain has done Fire Breathing in such Blockbuster movies as "Catching Fire", "Jumanji" and "Houses October Built 2". Maybelle has been featured in the horror movie "Hellfest" (appearing as The Bearded Lady). Together they’ve been on Season 6 of "America’s Got Talent".

You may have caught their act at a Ripley’s Believe It or Not! Odditorium, you’ve also seen Captain and Maybelle in several Ripley’s publications or perhaps at Six Flags Over Georgia’s Annual Fright Fest, “Atlanta & Co.”, “The Soup”, Coney Island’s Sideshows by the Seashore or a myriad of other equally impressive opportunities!
